American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) President’s One Health Support Comments to AVMA House of Delegates – Denver, Colorado (USA)   July 25 – 29, 2014: The President-elect of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 2014-2015, Dr. Ted Cohn spoke to the AVMA’s House of Delegates at the AVMA Convention in Denver, Colorado (USA) about his commitment to One Health:   “To increase the value of our profession to the world, we must constantly pay homage to that immutable bond that exists between animals, humans and the environment – a world of one health. Only as a cohesive forward thinking organization, willing to collaborate broadly with other groups and other professions, can we begin to accomplish the dreams of Dr. James Steele and the promise of One Health. By increasing our support of One Health and working more closely with groups such as the One Health Commission and the very proactive One Health initiative Team, we can potentially provide new career paths for veterinarians. In addition, a very positive and not so accidental side effect would be to increase the public’s appreciation for our profession’s role and possible future roles in the protection and maintenance of human and environmental health.”   Ted Cohn, DVM, President American Veterinary Medical Association  __________________   Note:  The One Health Initiative team greatly appreciates the recent One Health comments by AVMA President Dr. Ted Cohn.  Similarly, we value the letter of recognition from the immediate past President of the AVMA, Dr. Clark Fobian posted September 12, 2013 on the One Health Initiative website’s Publications page entitled American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Recognizes One Health Initiative Team and One Health Initiative website.   One Health Initiative Autonomous pro bono Team: Laura H.
